Multi Grazi!!!

Yes, I know – hold your fire! It should properly be written as Molte grazie – but I like mine and it conveys to mathematical American eyes that we are talking BIG here in appreciation. For what? For whom? You! Today was a landmark day. According to the stats, I passed 1000 views today – started the day at 997 and then crouched waiting to see what would happen and YOU CAME THROUGH FOR ME! Thank you! Thank you to all who read my material and those who are kind enough to click “like” and praise on high to those who comment – a rarebit crowd, youse guys.

I began this blog on or about December 16, 2012 and the richness of this experience, the joy of the feedback loop has been beyond anything I might have thought possible.  People pushed me for years – and you people know who you are! – to be a blogger.  I shied away, thinking it had all been said and better than I could do.  Without going back and reviewing the morning pages, I cannot remember what finally got me to start one, but I am so richly rewarded for having done so. To watch with amazement that I have reached people across the world… oh my! I was published before – such a slow, agonizing waiting process for some editor somewhere to decide yes. This way, you don’t make any money, but I am back to why I began writing in the first place. The sheer joy of putting pen to paper, fingers to keys, eyes to screen. Of reaching into the core of me and saying “Anybody else notice this?”

The difference between writing for publication and writing for the sheer joy/agony of opening up the veins and bleeding the words out for all to see – there is nothing, absolutely nothing that compares to it. You write because you have to, not because you want to. The ability to change the lens, to focus on what I have seen and observed or felt – well, in the end, it’s all about me!, isn’t it? Grin. No, it definitely is not – it begins that way and then the adventure starts. Suddenly, someone is responding. Somehow, some way they found me in the midst of this crazy interconnectedness of the web and they think it worthwhile to come on back! OH!

To all my readers, I wish you could journey inside of me – like that old film where they were shrunk down and injected into a person, so that you could feel the turbulence and sheer joy racing through the cells, the bloodstream, the heart and soul of this creature called HuntMode. And, on the flip side, to discover such a family of brilliant people writing their own worlds. Ah, c’est merveilleux, fantastic, outstanding, truly wonderful! Can you overdo exclamation marks? Not today.
